Marie Clements’ RED SNOW film premieres on Apple TV

Marie Clements’ award-winning narrative feature debut RED SNOW will be available for streaming and download on Apple TV beginning May 15th. Following its World Premiere screening at the Vancouver International Film Festival, a screening at the ImagineNATIVE Festival in Toronto, a robust global festival tour which continued into 2020, and a limited theatrical run, RED SNOW will now be available to viewers at home across the country.

Filmed on location in Canada’s Northwest Territories (Yellowknife and Dettah) and the desert interior region of British Columbia (the Ashcroft Band Lands, Cache Creek and Kamloops), RED SNOW is the powerful story of Dylan, a Gwich’in soldier from the Canadian Arctic, who is caught in an ambush in Panjwayi, Afghanistan. His capture and interrogation by a Taliban Commander release a cache of memories connected to the love and death of his Inuit cousin, Asana, and binds him closer to a Pashtun family as they escape across treacherous landscapes and through a blizzard that becomes their key to survival.

Featuring the talents of Tantoo Cardinal, Asivak Koostachin, Mozhdah Jamalzadah, Samuel Marty, Miika Bryce Whiskeyjack, Ishaan Vasdev, Shafin Karim and Kane Mahon, RED SNOW was shot in four languages including Gwich’in, Inuvialuktun, Pashto and English.

The Far North meets the Middle East in a journey of loss and rebirth that lays bare the land, blood ties, and two ancient cultures that collide to re-imagine a future born of 10,000 words for snow.

RED SNOW is written and directed by acclaimed Métis playwright, director, producer, and screenwriter, Marie Clements. Clements’ credits include the documentary feature The Road Forward, Looking at Edward Curtis and her fifteen plays, including The Unnatural and Accidental Women, have been presented on some of the most prestigious stages in the world, garnering numerous awards, including the 2004 Canada-Japan Literary Award and two prestigious Governor General’s Literary Award nominations.

RED SNOW has won numerous awards including Best Screenplay, Best Feature and Best Director at VIWFF, Most Popular Canadian Dramatic Feature at VIFF, Winner Best Canadian Feature Drama at EIFF and many more nominations at international festivals including LA Skins, American Indian Film Festival, the DGC and 10 Leo Award nominations.

RED SNOW was made possible with the support of CBC Films, Canada Media Fund, Telefilm Canada, the Women In the Director’s Chair Feature Film Award, Harold Greenberg Fund, APTN, Creative BC, the Canada Media Fund, APTN, the Harold Greenberg Fund, Creative BC, Film Incentive BC, CAVCO, and the Northwest Territories Film Rebate Program.
